Feb. :>.?Sir Blrroll Bar net. presld'eliV ftf the divorce court today granted tho Countess of Ynr-. mouth, who was Miss Alice Thaw, or Pittsburk? n decree nullifying tho mar? riage to/bo Karl of Yarmouth. The case wn? heard in private. At the time Hied for the commenco- , nicnt of the proceedings ovcry one not actually engaged on the care was ex-J eluded from the court room. The ease was practically undefended and the bearing lasted for only half an hour. Trwi, counters, attired In a fashionable black gown, was present Kit the Karl of Yarmouth was not In court. Only four witnesses were examined. They were the. Countess of Yarmouth herself, her fuajd, a doctor appointed by the court, and an American law-! yer who proved the marriage. . The countess gave evidence in support ot her allegation that the marriage had never been consumated nnd the maid (???stifled that the earl and the coun? tess had not boon living as man and wife. According to the evidence of the doctor the Hirl of Yarmouth wan Incapable of oonsuniatlng the mar? riage, but counsel for the plaintiff contended that this did not affect the; allegation that the marriage had not lieen consumated and he pointed out to the judge tH^t It JVas wllhln the discretion of the'court to annul the ninrrlngo if it was proved that It hud j not been consumated. Tho earl's lawyer satisfied hlhised with pointing out that the evidence of the doctor removed any stigma placed upon the <ioi+-hy tho evidence of the plaintiff and that there were no grounds upon which tho countess could have sued for divorce. The judge pronounced hi-- decree annulling the nvaxriepe without com? ment. In the ordinary rours? of events it will be made absolute In six months. No mention was made of a mar? riage settlement and it was learned fron? an nuthoritatiy'e source that contrary to certain published state? ments the question of revising the settlement has not been discussed.

NEWPORT NEW Louis Wolf, a Prosperous Brooklyn Men, Confesses He Has Com milled Many Crimes. I IKE DR. JiKYLl UNO MB. HYDE Trained to Evil Life, He Could Not Resist; the Temptation to Pick Poc ketr. Though He T ied Hard to Ov? ercome Temptation?FricndG Can't Believe Him Guilty. (By Associated Pre?s.) NKW YORK. Feb. fi.?Confesslnr. that In spite of all-his efforts to lead an honest life, he was Unable to re* ;-ist the temptation t<> pink pocketa, to which ho, itiitl been trained in his youth. IjoiiIs Wolf, a prosperous DrOOklyu business man. who was ar? rested more than a month ago in that borough, lias revealed as strange n tale of a dotiWc life and the never ending struggle between right and wrong a.s- baa ever been told out? side' of the pages' of fiction. Like Stevenson's "Or. Jekyll," the impulse to do wrong gripped Wolf with an in? tensity that ho could no more resist than could "Mr, llydo" refrain from committing the crimes that his other personality was guilth-ss* of. Nor was Wolf's legitimate business merely a cloke for bis other trade, as has been the case In other Instance*! of apparently honest men w'eo were crlmiuals ' at heart. Ho protested, to Assistant District Attorney Elder. of Brooklyn, that his de? sire Hi reform was slncerej and that it was only when tho temptation lo go out and steal became tot? strong for a weakened will to withstand that ho yielded to it. "I have made an high n.; ?7.nnn a year picking pockets at night, while carrying on my nig and carpel busi? ness in the daytime," Is part of the amazing human document that now forms a part of the criminal records of Kings county. The confession In full was not made public, but Mr. Elder gave out enough of it yesterday to reveal tho tragic story of a man who. bred to a life of crime, sincerely tried to reform, but fount! the power of old habits too strong for him. Early Career of Crime. "I was born on the east side of Manhattan Ibirty-thiv-o years ago," said Wolf in his confession. "After leaving school, at the age of fifteen, I fell in with a hand of young men who never worked and whoso ability to drr.ss well and spend money liber? ally was always a mystery to nie. At last I learned that thev were pick? pockets', and before long I was their pupil iu crime. "Their leader was a man. then In niiddie life, who was known to Ihe band both aw "Ohl Isaacs" which probably was his real name, und as 'Fngin the Secopd.' He conducted a school for pickpockets "that In every? thing but Uto local setting rca mblod that conducted by old Fugln in IHck en's hovel of 'Oliver Twist.' H> Wnfl ?an expert 'dip.' 'panhandler' and 'strong arm man." to use terms from the vocabulary of thieves. Under his Instructions I soon learned all there was to 1" learned of Hit* games of proving on the public, and became an expert myself. "When I had become proficient in crime I struck out for ihe West. I had made lots "f money from my thefts in N'ew York, and I continued to live well in Chicago and St. l/uiis. I was arrested In Chicago several times, but 1 usually oscaped with a light sentence. "Later on I was arrested In Kt Loultf, and while doing lime there I began to realize that I was leading a dog's life after nil. I had had the advantage of a public school educa? tion, and w-ss perhaps better able to think along right, lines fluni some of the men who had'been my early asso? ciates In crime. While I was serv? ing a sentence in the St. I.oulh work J house 1 made up my mind lo lead an hen. si life. Thinking it over. I came lo the conclusion that 1 could .Juaao money honestly in New- York, und that timo had changed nie so Innl none of my old associates would rec? ognize ii,c. and I would not be tempt < d to fall by the wayside. "I came back East and started life anew, i-'or a long tlmo'after I marled In business In East New York I was the happiest man living. I felt as if a great load had been lifted from my Shoulders, As 1 look back 1 feel that 1 must huvo bad the vestiges of a Ronsclonpo, I felt then that the Um ptatloo to pick pockets would never return. Yielded to Temptation. "One night Wb*U 1 wont, out on tho streets alone 1 felt the call of the old trade come -back. I was perfectly ?ober, but I could no raoro realst Um S.

I yielded to the temptation, ami when I got home I cursed nil b' If for n coward and a weakling. I redoubled my attention to my business, but 1 fell again and again. Now 1 am here. "1 want to be an honest man. There is that within me that Impels me to lend an honest life. Hut my will Is too weak. I cannot resist tempta? tion." Wolfs confession chars up a mystery that has bc;n puzzling the police evr tinee his arrest. In the middle of December, when he was ac? cused by Prank llelble. a Brooklyn butcher, of taking JRO from the hit? ter's pocket on a KM g wood car. Wolf protest! d his innocence, and tuen of standing, who had made his acquaintance since Iii? establishment of himself In the bjUtine-s of manu? facturing carpets a?d ? rugs In Hast New York, eighteen inontlei ago, came forward and told the. police that they had made a great mistake: that it could not In. possible that a mull who was so diligent and successful in his bustmss could be a pickpocket.
